LaCie Little Big Disk
What do you get when you cross functionality with a ridiculously awesome name? You get the LaCie Little Big Disk, of course! A portable hard drive that sports the most up to date technology available today, large storage size, a sleek design, and looks great on the desk next to your iMac, Macbook or Macbook Pro. But how about specifics?
Let's say you're someone who doesn't really like carrying around a lot of heavy, honkin' machinery.That's understandable, and thankfully, LaCie understands your plight. With the Little Big Disk, you get a full sized, 1TB hard drive that is completely bus-powered, meaning you don't need to bring any extra cords along with you. Plugging in the very easy USB 3.0 cord from the drive to your computer allows full use of it-- no power cord necessary.
Another great addition of the LaCie Little Big Disk is the fact that you can chain multiple drives together to separate various files. If you're a photographer, let's say, and you need one drive for unfinished photos, one for finished photos, and then a backup drive for your main internal hard drive, you can just chain three of the LaCie hard drives together and you'll no longer have to worry about storage issues and separation ever again.
Lastly, it supports the incredibly high speed USB 3.0 ports on your computer, but also has 2.0 support if you require that. The only downside to the device? The price. It can range from $150-$250 depending on where you buy, making it an expensive addition to your external hard drive collection.
